A4 60008 "Dwight D. Eisenhower" is on its way to the National Railway Museum in York, England for the celebration of the 75th anniversary of Mallard's world steam speed record. The locomotive.and its tender traveled on two flat cars from Green Bay Wisconsin to Halifax, Nova Scotia where it arrived on the damp and dull morning of 19 August 2012. The final leg from Moncton to Halifax was on CN intermodal train # 120 pulled by 4 locomotives with a total horsepower of almost 17,000! There were 153 freight cars on the train.
The move is being filmed by Windfall for an episode of Monster Moves. The company doing the move is Moveright International Limited. This is the same company that moved Dunrobin (see my youtube video).
After "DDE" is unloaded, the special flat cars will be returned to Montreal where A4 Dominion of Canada will be loaded.
After transfering to mafis (container platforms) both locomotives will then go on an ACL container ship to Britain. The unloading is shown in the second video http://www.youtu.be/j_s5A6FMioY
